Mata Fina is the “Prima Donna” of Cigar Tobaccos; it is a Premium Tabacco produced in Bahia, in Brazil, used for the manufacturing of many high-quality Cigars. It is called “Prima Donna” due to its amazing aromatic, but at the same time delicate, characteristics. Mata Fina falls within the Dark Air-Cured class. The tobaccos belonging to this class are used for the manufacturing of cigars, are air-cured and are subjected to a fermentation process which gives their leaves a very dark colour and strong aromatic scents. The Mata Fina we selected is a Sun-Grown-Wrapper, i.e. a wrapper tobacco grown in the sun. Compared to Shade-Grown-Wrappers, which are softer and more neutral, Sun-Grown Wrappers are characterised by stronger aromas precisely because they are cultivated in the sun. In cigar manufacturing, “Wrapper” is how the outermost leaf is defined, with “Binder” being the sub-layer, and “Filler” the innermost part.
Our Mata Fina Tobacco Extract, part of our Elite Line, will meet the tastes of those looking for a strong and at the same time delicate and sensual aroma that will elegantly accompany them all day long, like a true “Prima Donna”.
